Unusual Child Support Order

In family law, there are several consequences for not paying child support. An unusual sentence, at least in my opinion, was handed down and appealed in another state not Florida. The individual was actually sentenced on a crime and the court took the liberty of addressing back child support in the criminal case.

Usual consequences of having an arrearage, or owing back child support is the suspension of a driver's license, the suspension of a professional license or the seizure of assets. This person had a special condition of his probation that he could not have any more children until his back child support was paid. According to the internet post I read, he owed over $100,000. He probably should have requested a modification of his child support order. While I believe this order to be unconstitutional, the appeals court did not actually decide that and requested more information from the trial court.

Whatever your situation with child support, if you need it, or need to modify it, do not let it get out of hand without at least reaching out to a lawyer first. Please click or call today for a consultation in your child support or other family law matter.
